Amazing, thank you! I notice it doesn't popup a window and ask: save or view anymore - even better (I'm hoping - not sure yet). Thank you! ;)

I have found that all one needs to do is to go into tools/options/applications and change "Preview in Firefox" to "Use Adobe Acrobat (in Firefox") and you can easily change back to the previous mode.

I also actually love the Preview in Firefox, it allows you to open links in a Adobe document in a new tab and other sweet things.
